Evening Mosque

It had just turned dark, we were shopping in the market behind the Umayyad mosque and I noticed an open door into the mosque’s courtyard. I entered. A man sat in quiet contemplation. The stone floor was still warm to my stocking-footed feet. I felt that this moment embodied the peace of Islam.
